    Mini bus - short term <destination>

    so obviously I have been taking more mini buses. Been exploring with the little tykes.

    What does a short-term mean? some of the mini buses with the electronic signs sometimes says short-term in front of the destination?

    It may be a mis-translation of what would be called a "short service" in other countries. Basically a minibus that doesn't go the entire way. Not entirely sure though.

    Not entirely sure, but the minibus I often take has a cheaper price if you get off before a certain stop. You need to push the little button below the octopus card reader to change the price before you beep. If you go the full route, you aren't supposed to get the discount

    Not seen this sign. Might be specific to your operator and perhaps indicating that the bus is running on a shorter than usual route?

    Have a GeoExpat related problem - please create a support ticket.
